AI War originally made use of a sprite set released by the author for free commercial or non-commercial use: [url]http://www.lostgarden.com/2007/04/free-game-graphics-tyrian-ships-and.html[/url]. Arcen Games eventually hired an artist to redo the artwork, but yeah, nothing wrong with this game using the same sprites that AI War used originally. I've used the same sprite set for prototyping work before.

Great to see this ported over from android, as more RTS games are always welcome. I wish you could also bring over "Crusaders" to IOS as I like medieval RTS games.

Funny you mention that

I am working on porting Crusaders to the iPhone / iPad but I want to make it a lot more impressive on the iOS platform with bigger maps, more units etc...

I think bigger maps is great idea, which would allow for more enemies/monsters to fight, as well as increasing the unit cap or maybe allowing to buy more heroes (for balancing). Also, adding monster lairs (containing gold) or other random objectives would be interesting.
